Liver cancer treatments

Dear Sir,..

my mom in law has been recently diagnosed as liver cancer although doctors haven't taken any biopsy so far. ( which make the family not very confident of this diagnosis ).

I was told that there're more than one type of Liver cancer that each one has a different way to be treated ( one with chemo and the other with Alcohol injection plus radiation ).

I need to know how to differentiate between the different types of liver and what treatment for each type.

if someone is willing to help, I can share the CT scan images and any other advised / required analysis.

Thanks & Best Regards

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i I wish you would have a shared the reports of your relatives liver cancer. Usually its is hepatoma or hepatocellular carcinoma. Treatment depends upon the extent of invasion and the size. If it is terminal and high grade than the treatment is mostly supportive. Consult your hepatobiliary surgeon or Gastroenterologist and let them decide what is best for your patient.

Take care
